The central aim of the International Criminal Law from University of Amsterdam is to train a new style of international criminal lawyers who are capable of transcending (disciplinary) borders, by offering a broad and deep understanding of relevant issues pertaining to international and cross-border justice and supporting the development of academic skills through the in-depth analysis of such issues.
The programme combines the study of theoretical aspects and foundations of international criminal law with its practical application, by offering workshops in international criminal law and opportunities for dialogues with practitioners from courts and tribunals as well as related international criminal justice organizations.
